Highlands Travel Guide
When the seasons start to change and colors begin to turn, we'd usually suggest a trip to the Northeast to catch Fall Foliage at its peak. But turns out peepers south of the Mason-Dixon line are eager to cash in on this autumnal rite of passage, too. (And we hear, it may even be a few degrees warmer down there!)
From October 1 through November 15, foliage fanatics can book a room at Old Edwards Inn and experience fall in the Smoky Mountains with the Leaf Looker Package. The deal includes two nights in one of the 32 deluxe guestrooms (we'd recommend snagging a porch suite), a champagne welcome, continental breakfasts, and a gourmet picnic lunch that's perfectly packed for the open road. The inn is conveniently located near a number of trails, scenic routes for drives through the Smokys and area waterfalls.
Plus, the Inn's exclusive Sweet Mountain Meadow Cocoon spa treatment ensures a restful night's sleep after a long day out in the crisp North Carolina air.
